If you hold gold, how much Bitcoin?


Jan 04

If you are of the mind that Bitcoin could replace or equate to gold, it makes sense to hold a portion of whatever you allocate to gold in Bitcoin. The natural ratio is

Bitcoin market cap/gold market cap

Right now, that’s around 685 Billion/9 Trillion (estimated) which yields around 7% to 8%. This ensures if you hold 8% in Bitcoin and it grows to replace gold, you will have preserved your wealth.

However, notice what this means: As Bitcoin market gap grows, you have to allocate a larger and larger percentage towards it. This could certainly create a run. So, savvy investors are more likely to allocate a larger percentage sooner then later.
